That message just means that the file was written successfully, not that the key was correct. You could have put in CANT-REGI-STER-MYLW and it would have said the same. :)

If you are running a 32-bit version of LightWave and moving to 64-bit, do you have a 64-bit license.key? Did you check the Lock ID was reported the same by Layout? Here are the steps to follow to register another platform for a LightWave licence:

1. Login to the Registration system at http://register.newtek.com;
2. Go to My Products;
3. Copy the LightWave v9 serial number from there;
4. Go back to My Home and register a new LightWave 3D;
5. Paste the serial number you copied and you will be presented with a page where the licence you already registered is filled in, but there are empty cases for the other two platforms. Make sure you verify that the dongle number is correct for the platform you are registering.

hi Beevee, I did get the new 64bit serial and license key from NTregistration however its not taking it. very strange.

I think I will uninstall and re-install... I have noticed that Vista is very very finicky about installing new software.

thanks for the help.

Ah if it's Vista, then turn off UAC while you put the license.key in. You can turn it back on afterwards if you like. UAC "redirects" the writing of files to safer areas.
